Hello and Happy new year,
Is it possible to make a clamp like attached picture?
I have tried forming tool on a flat sheet metal part, but I don't like to use alot of waisted time of trying to build this if its not possible.
Thanks in advance!
It is possible just not with sheet metal. Typically when there is a stamping operation like this you can create with sheet metal but it will never flatten. You would end up removing the features to get it to flatten anyways.
I would just model this as a larger block, then cut the inner open radius out, and finally use the shell to get the final part. But that is just one way, you could model this a lot of different ways just not using sheet metal.
It's not a must to make it in sheet metal, I just asumed that was the way to make this type of part.
Your solution seems ok, so I will try to make it that way.
And here is the result:
I didn't get the Shell-feature without sidewalls, so had to cut them away too.Its not a product we are goung to make, just like to have it realistic in a complete assembly.
